 American Idol Voters not as in love as expected dusty  
 2006-03-22 22:15:14       
Television This week on American Idol, the number of votes went a bit down from before, this week only 35 million votes were cast.

Ryan Seacrest had a small chat with the judges as usual, and asked them if they were speaking with each other again. Simon Cowell replied with "Me and Randy? Yes!"

This was followed up by a recap from Barry Manilow helping the contestants to prepare and a recap of the performances.

At the end of the break there was a Ford commercial. My hopes for a new writer of the commercials are fading again. This week it was the group singing the song "We Got The Beat" while they were on the beach, and one of the 'items' was Kevin buried under a pile of sand with only his head sticking out. The sand on top of him was in the shape of 'a strong man'. The whole commercial was in my opinion actually pathetic, and I assume they still have the same writer as the stupid commercials from last year.

Ryan had a small talk with Barry before he performed, and Barry gave a compliment to all the contestants that they are very talented, dedicated and motivated. After the small talk Barry performed the song "Love Is A Many Splendoured Thing.", which in his opinion shows perfectly how music was performed in the 1950's. It was a very good vocal of Barry, and that while I normally don't like his performances.

After the performance all the contestants came up on the stage to thank Barry while Ryan was talking to the camera (even Bobby Bennett came on the stage, though he got voted off a few weeks ago).

It was time for the results, unlike all the other times, this time Ryan went down the list, and all 8 first contestants were safe, they were in order of called: Ace Young, Mandisa, Elliott Yamin, Kellie Pickler, Chris Daughtry, Paris Bennett, Katharine McPhee, and Taylor Hicks.

That made the bottom 3: Kevin Covais, Lisa Tucker, and Bucky Covington.

After a commercial it was announced that Lisa was in the bottom 3 but not in the bottom 2. Ryan asked for advice for Bucky and Kevin and of course Paula Abdul said it was only the beginning, and said look what other contestants managed to do, followed by using Clay Aiken and Bo Bice as examples, which in my opinion is no comparison as those were runners up of their seasons.

Ryan started talking to Bucky saying he was sorry, but unlike the expected :"You had the lowest votes", he said he was sorry that Bucky had to stand there so long and that Bucky was safe and Kevin was going home. As the title suggests, I guess this means that America wasn't as in love with Kevin as the judges had thought they were. The Granny vote just couldn't keep up.

Now anyone that paid attention to my reactions before knows I'm not very fond of Bucky, however after listening to the recording from last night I didn't find him that bad that he should have been in the bottom 3. In my opinion Ace's vocal performance last night was by far the worst of the night, and somehow I'm glad he didn't end up leaving yet.

Curlio, may I suggest you sum up your comments that Chicken Little was eliminated. I notice that you end with Bucky was safe...Not criticizing...just commenting. Thank you anyway for your comments. I don't get to see AI that early in my country. So your website has indeed helped a lot. Also I am glad that Lisa Tucker is given a chance. Let's hope she learn her lesson and perform her best next week. So Lisa, you got my support (although i can't vote hehe). Go girl....

Yea, next get rid of Ace, Kellie and Bucky. Then the competition can be a great watch. The final two should be Mandisa and Taylor Hicks. And to Simon Cowell, your prediction will be WRONG!!! The final three will be Mandisa, Taylor and Katherine!!!!!

I too thought Paula's comparison was lame when she tells the bottom 2 that they have a chance for success as Bo and Clay (both runner-ups.) Wonder what has happen to all the other seasons' 11th place contestants? Anybody know?

Kevin may be a cute(?) kid, but was never right for AI. Glad the didn't have much influence.

Actually I typed up the recap this time. I fixed the problem. For the recaps you will all have to put up with me, as curlio will be watching Lost as long as there is a new episode.
For I am the dust!

I think that Chris is the best singer and performer. Taylor cannot sing or dance. It is pathetic that America likes that kind of sound. Chris all the way class is just class

Well, VFTW already stated that if Chicken Little got sent home, they would support Kellie Pickler.

Lets hope that she gets the same treatment as Kevin!

Katherine McPhee will win American Idol.....Chris will be spared that stigma and front a major band.....Kellie will never be poor again as I am sure offers are already pouring in..... Mandisa will go back to singing in church.....Ace will be a TV star in some kind of sitcom.....Taylor will tour with some blues legends.....Lisa Tucker will go on to broadway.....Paris will grow into her full potential at a latter date and be a star.....after that does anybody really care what happens to the others? I doubt it.

I'm a new AI watcher and have enjoyed it immensely. I know Simon is not a favorite with everyone, but Ryan needs to stop dogging him at every chance he gets. Or is he supposed to do that for ratings? For myself I don't appreciate that behavior. As far as I can tell Simon has not risen to Ryan's crap. He maintains his composure and comes off as gentleman. Somebody grab Ryan and shove him off to the corner. It takes away from the performers.

While Taylor is my favorite, (although I thought his performance on Tuesday was uncomfortable and a waste of his voice) I kept trying to figure out what it was about Bucky's voice that appealed to me. I finally got it. While a Lynard Skynard, southern rock comparison is appropriate, the guy really sounds like John Hiatt. If he could get those husky vocals around a Hiatt song like "Slow Turning," it would be great. Although,unfortunately, probably not to eleven year olds. But John Hiatt is so repected, I just feel it would open up some people with some music knowledge eyes.
I also had the Eureka moment that Chris sounds like the singer from Live--great band. I read on another posting that his rendition of "Walk the Line," was based on their version. I think he's great and very talented, but apparently not near as original as the judges think. And that brings up another point. If they don't have enough music knowledge to know he was knocking off Live, maybe they need one judge who has some alternative background. If contestents continue to come for more varied backgrounds with different styles, it would be nice to have a George Gimarck type saying, "hey, that's a nice nod to the Stranglers 'Strange Little Girl," for example.

Other thoughts. Constantine is not an idol and needs to put any money he's made toward bying a chin. Chris makes Constantine's "rock" look so pathetic. Sitcom my ass. Yes Kelli seems more and more an act and less sincere--but doesn't Ace seem like the kind of I-love-my-fans faker that makes fat girl jokes as soon as an overweight fan walks away?

There are millions of great, hooky songs out there. Why do they pick the most boring ones of all time?

Did anybody else think that Kellie's interupting Ryan to get in her cutesy comment was wierd ? "whats a balsey". I think her comments are phoney when she is being judged and interviewed but I think anyone could tell that she was working it tonight from her seat. She must have thought she needed to make up for last night when her mic went off and she couldn't think of a response to Ryans question.

yes, Simon can be so crass and insensitive but contestants should listen to his comments....i mean, really listen. He has a feel for what would "click" not only to the american audience but the global audience. Have you ever listened to the Il Divo?! Simon had a very big part in choosing them and WOW they are a fantastic group!

Melinda: You're so right on about Chris Daughtry taking credit (albeit by his silence) for the 'Live' band's rearrangement of Johnny's 'Walk the Line'. Chris received much praise from the judges AND many, many writers, who apparently aren't up on "Live"s music, when in fact, it was simply a very good copy-cat performance.

Though it was not unexpected, I was a little sad that Kevin got the boot tonight. He's a sweet boy, but he had to go because he's the least talented in the top 12. Anyhow, my crystal ball predicts that we will defenitely see more of Kevin in the near future. He might get big breaks in showbiz and can make the name for himself. Remember William Hung? He's worse than Kevin. Look what happens to him now! After he launched into "She Bangs", he quickly became a household name. Now, he's quite rich and very popular in Asia. Kevin may follow in his footsteps to become a singer too. Good Luck!

I'm also glad that VFTW didn't sway many votes. I love you America!!! When it comes to the serious business, you always make the right decision. Who's going to be the next Idol casualty? Ace, Kellie or Bucky? Stay tuned!

This season has to be so funny. How can anyone call Kevin sexy???? Chickenlittle yes but sexy?? Yuck he's a child. He does have a nice voice but not for today's kind of music. I hope the best for him. He's a good sport. I do not like Ace's voice he's only still here casue of his looks and kellie as well. The rest are pretty good. I like Taylor he's entertaining for sure. Keep it up Guys......
